In Ireland it's pronounced IE-leen, with the stress on the first syllable. [noted -ed]

My Gaelic-speaking uncle from Mull pronounced my name between EYE-len and AY-len, which perhaps explains the spelling Aileen. North Americans put the stress on the second syllable for some reason.
("eilean" means a small island as in Eilean Donan).
